PQ mourns a Joyce scholar



As many of you are James Joyce fans, here is some sad news I need to pass on: James Joyce scholar John Bishop has died.

Here are some of the opening sentences from PQ's post at the "Finnegans, Wake!" blog: "The retired Berkeley professor and legendary James Joyce scholar who wrote Joyce's Book of the Dark, John Bishop, passed away on Friday May 15th, 2020 after suffering complications due to Covid-19. He had been fighting through health maladies the last several years ... It is safe to say John Bishop's book Joyce's Book of the Dark made a huge impact on me."

Much more here. You can also read the official obituary for John Bishop.
